"Fail your way to success" really speaks to me.
It is funny how you are expected to make some life-changing decisions the minute you hit a certain age or reach the end of high school, when the day before that you were treated as a child and only needed to follow to your parents and teacher’s instructions. I have almost reached the conclusion of my undergraduate studies, yet at this point when I am expected to choose which governmental department or area of the justice and legal system I want to work in by the end of the week I am having plenty of doubtful thoughts about whether I made the right life-changing decision at the end of high school (well, at the end of first year for me). I feel like I did make a good choice in choosing a course that is surrounded by a theme that riles my passion and motivation, but there is also a part of me that is uncertain, wondering whether this is where I actually want to work in the long-run. The thought of dealing with individuals on a daily basis who may have raped, killed or seriously messed another person’s life (or multiple lives) a few years before can be challenging and rewarding on one hand but damaging on the other.
Sunday afternoon delight with food trucks, good weather and company at Yarraville Gardens. I finally got to try the Lavender and Honey creme brûlée (by the Brûlée Cart) and the pork belly option from Gorilla Grill. It was all very enjoyable, especially the oh so sweet corn.
I start the water challenge today. I have to drink at least 1.5L of water everyday which is quite difficult for me as I hardly drink on a daily basis. That probably explains my poor skin condition and health.
I am so upset for so many things today.
- My sister’s presentation is tonight and I can’t go because a few weeks ago she made mum sign the parental registration form and wrote that nobody is available to attend.
- My mum didn’t know what that form was for until I told her this morning.
- My mum’s involvement in my sister’s life is not as adequate as a mother should have for their teenage daughter.
- I can’t donate blood.
